President John D. Mahama thanked the Turkish Entrepreneurs who founded schools in his country. He said: “These schools mean more than education. They had built bridges between our countries long before we started business relationships”. He added: “When Turkish Airlines started flights between Turkey and Ghana, I was wondering how the airplane would find enough passengers to keep the flights on. But I saw that the airplane was completely full when I was coming here. Some businessmen could not find a ticket on Turkish Airlines and they had to travel with different airlines. Today, the relationship between Turkiye and Ghana reached to a great level. Turkish schools have great contributions in this development.” Mr Mahama stated that Africa has 300 million population and $700 billion market, and he called Turkish entrepreneurs to do investments in every industry but particularly in energy, road construction, health and gold mining. He explained that African entrepreneurs want to establish partnership with Turkey, China and India since the global economic crises started.

Turkish Economy minister Mr. Zafer Caglayan made a speech too and thanked the Turkish schools for their contributions to relations between the two countries.
